Not really reading the mailing lists too much, but this thread made me
remember that on my laptop, when I found that tab to click does not work I
assumed that the Linux drivers for my device are simply bad... Over the
time I just got used to hitting the special button... (I only tweaked the
config to some when get multi touch scroll working)
But well I can only speak for myself, but I found it irritating.
